What is MoneyWise?

The MoneyWise Program assists individuals and families, who receive social benefits, pensions and wages. We will help by showing you how to manage your finances and avoid homelessness. This will help you maintain affordable housing and avoid recurring debt. This completely free trusteeship program is run by the Salvation Army’s Community and Family Services Department.

How does MoneyWise work?

Our staff members will help you learn how to:

  • budget
  • reduce and eliminate unpaid debt
  • set goals for saving money
  • build confidence in handling your finances.

We tailor our services to meet your unique needs. We can help you understand complex invoices and negotiate repayment plans with creditors. We will also refer you to other community agencies if you need additional supports or services.
